The troubled actress – who recently returned home to Los Angeles following a stint at Utah’s Cirque Lodge facility where she was receiving treatment for “an eating disorder and addiction issues” – is said to have been “working on herself a lot” during her time in rehab.

An insider told People magazine: “Demi is in a much better place. She has been working on herself a lot. She is content.”

It was recently claimed the 49-year-old star - who split from husband Ashton Kutcher in November amid speculation he had cheated on her – was eager to get back to work and is “totally committed” to putting her past troubles behind her.

A source said: “Demi feels great and she is eager to get back to work. She has been focusing on her health in the last month and she's getting better every day. Demi wants to work again; she knows that she can handle a few projects so she's looking forward to that.
